Episode 48 of Season 5 aired at 19h00 on 1 Dec 2022 on Rebel Rock Radio. It was a tricky show because of the wifi signal jumping in and out. The podcast is 100% so that is a small mercy I am thankful for. We kicked off with a double header in the form of the first two tracks on W.A.S.P’s magnum opus The Crimson Idol. From there is was a bit of Southern Rock from Whiskey Myers and then over to Ireland for some Therapy? and a track called ‘Unbeliever’ off the clritically acclaimed Troublegum. We stayed with the late ‘80s type guitar driven rock with Badlands and a track called ‘Dancing on the Edge’. The Badlands debut album with Jake E. Lee, Ray Gillen, Eric Singer and Greg Chaisson was the first CD I ever bought and has a special place in my heart.
Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy classics ‘Killing Yourself to Live’ and ‘Some Day She’s Going to Hit Back’ were up next and then from these classics we got up to date with two albums released in the last month; Soilworks’ Overgivenheten and Sakis Tolis’s Among the Fires of Hell. Mötley Crüe’s track ‘Motherfucker of the Year’ off Saints of Los Angeles elicited some nominations from the listeners, so I will collect a few more and we can discuss that another time. The Offspring and Blink 182 hit the spot for the ‘90’s kids.
We spent a lot of time talking Metallica, they dropped a first track off the new album 72 Seasons this week and the 2023/24 Tour is kicking off soon. They are doing two gigs per city with different opening acts and different sets each night. I played Pantera, Five Finger Death Punch and Mammoth WVH all of who will be part of the M72 Tour. To end off we checked out the ladies, Taylor Momsen and Lzzy Hale and said farewell and RIP to Christine Mc Vie of Fleetwood Mac who passed away this week. We listened to her play and sing ‘Oh Daddy’ off the multi-million selling Rumours album. SA bands were a bit thin on the ground tonight but we squoze in The Uninvited and The Burning before saying cheers and playing out with KISS and their anthem ‘ Let me Go Rock ‘n’ Roll. Thanks for listening, much appreciated. Cheers until next time.
